BAGHDAD (AP) Iraqi officials say a car bomb near a crowded Baghdad marketplace has killed 9 people and wounded 20.
The attack happened in the mainly Sunni Shaab neighborhood. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the bombing.
Hospital officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke anonymously as they were not authorized to brief the media.
Baghdad has endured near-daily bombings for months, most of which have targeted Shiite areas and been blamed on the Islamic State group and other Sunni extremists.
